Kassie blushed slightly when he pulled the chair for her. Bloody hell. She really needed to stop doing that. It was starting to get out of hand. She swiftly sat down after voicing her quiet thank you.
Kassie smiled at his words. “I just can’t take from you like that. It’s not right…” she shook her head, not liking the idea of taking them for granted in that way. “Anyhow… I like your idea about a muggle joke shop,” she grinned. “I think it’d be a big hit as well. Make them all marvel in wonder! And of course I’d help run it, right?” Her head tilted to the side as she bit her lip, beaming across from him. She was joking, but part of her liked the thought of spending more time with him…and Fred.
She mumbled a quiet thank you before sitting down. George walked around the table and sat as well. “I know, but Kass, it’s hardly taking if you tell us about it. If it makes you feel better you could ask. It’s not like we won’t make up the money.” He grinned. “Yes, of course you’d help run it! I don’t see anyone else suitable for that job.” He winked at her.
She pursed her lips. “So you’re saying you don’t want my money, is that it?” she joked with him, her voice building as she dramatized the situation. “Is it not as good as everyone else’s?!” Her hand patted her heart, trying to control her smirk. “Oh, I see how it is. My money’s just not good enough for you. Well, then…” She looked away, grinning now
A few giggles escaped her lips, clapping her hands a little when he said that she could help run the possibility of a new shop. “Yay! So, you let me know when arrangements have been made, yes?” she said with a grin. “And after you’re talked to Fred of course.”
By then, a waitress had made her way over to them and asked what they would like to drink. “Bu-” Kassie started to say, but then she remembered where she was, and who would be waiting on them. “I-I mean, uhm, what do you have?” The waitress lazily named off the restaurant’s held beverages. “Uhm, a cola would be fine…”
“Your money will never be good enough for me!” He grinned and laughed slightly. “Honestly, woman. I’ll never understand why you insist that you pay for the stuff you get. Ever heard of employee discount?” Fred would probably be mad at him, but he didn’t care. Hayley never had to pay for anything that he was aware of.
“Yes, I think it’ll be brilliant! We will have to get right on it. And of course, you’ll be in charge. Highest authority and all.” He nodded enthusiastically. “It was practically your idea.” He rolled his eyes.
When the waitress made her way over and asked her what she wanted to drink, George almost laughed at her near slip up. He’d have to bring her to the muggle world more, wouldn’t he? He needed to get used to it anyway, and what better way than random dates there? “I’ll have the same.” He said in a lower tone, watching her until she glanced back at him, in which he looked down at the menu.
